Construction of HALO Men's Shelter Moving Forward in Salisbury


SALISBURY, Md.- As the temperature continues to drop, it becomes especially tough for the homeless population. In Wicomico County, Christian-based Hope and Life Outreach, or HALO, is one step closer to opening a new shelter.

HALO already has a shelter for women and children in Salisbury, along with a cafe and day facility. Construction continues to move forward on a men's shelter right next door. The drywall is up, and the beds will soon be in.

“We need to get the guys in to a warm place and a safe place, and also a place where we can begin to work with them and help them believe in themself to the point where they can get out of their situation,” explained HALO executive director Celeste Savage.

But at HALO, it is about much more than just offering protection from the cold.

“God has a plan for everyone, and it's a plan to prosper them, to give them hope and future,” noted Savage. “And that's what we want to do here at HALO.”

The HALO men's shelter will hold 55 beds, and is set to open November 24th.
